"The first thing I have learned is that you are never too small to make a difference."
We are going to be finding out more over the next few weeks all about the issue of climate change and why it is a topic that has been featured in the news a lot recently. We begun by thinking about what we already knew about climate change as fact, what we think we know and what we would like to know. We discussed who we thought was responsible for climate change and how it made us feel. There were many insightful and interesting contributions to kick-start our discussions.
School Council Elections
We have been exercising our democratic rights by voting in our school council elections. We all had the opportunity to write our own manifestos, campaign and finally vote for who should be our elected school councillors. We have had the opportunity for our voices to be heard and our views to be taken into consideration as to who we would like to represent our class. We discussed why it is important in our society to have a democracy, where everyone has an equal vote. We know that in some countries, this is not the case.
